Attacks on Indian students in Australia are racial: Scholar
New Delhi | Monday, Jan 11 2010 IST
Condemning attacks on Indian students in Australia , an Australian scholar today descibed the attacks as "racial".
He also accused the Australian Government of not doing enough to prevent such attacks. ''Attacks going on against indian students in Australia are racial and the Australian government hasn't made any special protection strategy to stop it yet,'' Prof Partha Gangopadhyay, of University of Western Sydney in Australia, said.
Talking to UNI on the sidelines of an International Conference on Conflict Management, Peace Economics and Peace Science organised by Indira Gandhi National Open University (IGNOU), Gandhi Smriti and Darshan Smriti and UNESCO jointly at 'Gandhi Darshan' at Rajghat here, Mr Gangopadhyay said some African migrants and Lebanese workers were losing their jobs because of Indian students, resulting in racist attacks on the Indians.
Dr Gangopadhyay , however, said the average Australian was peaceloving and does not have feelings of racism against any one.
